While in England he was employed by the state and in the service of the state he went to Antwerp at both the Spanish Sieges and Escaped from both. He returned home and was Knighted by the Queen and Married.

I learned that the Spanish sacked Antwerp.


I really liked The Battles

I didn’t like when Ned got captured.

I Wonder Why the Spanish sacked a friendly town.

I would recommend this book because it is exciting history.
